Purpose of Exercise: To widen the upper back and create a full sweep in the lats
Wide-Grip Chins widen the lats and develop the entire shoulder area. This movement is mainly for the outer regions of the lats and also spreads the scapula, making it easier to flare the lats.
Take hold of the chinning bar with an overhand grip, hands as wide apart. Hang from the bar then pull yourself up until the back of your neck touches the bar. Do not kick your legs to help raise yourself up. At the top of the movement hold for a brief moment. Then lower yourself back down to the starting position.
